    The Phillips head screw just holds the cap on, the older models just had a snap-on cap that always fell off.

    Did you disconnect the cable from the handle or from the reverse gate?

    If you...

    Something else you might look at are Click Bond fasteners. Surfaces must be clean and smooth, but they really hold.

    The cover and the flapper valves are available from Kawi. The fuel pump parts are not.

    You've already be able to remove the screws, correct? If not, I'd try to heat them, then unscrew them.

    I think threaded inserts would be a reasonable solution.

    Pictures would help!

    Sure didn't look like the Waverunner was going very fast when he was hit. He had just completed a 180° turn and apparently didn't see the boat that hit him. Don't think a lower speed limit would...

    I've never really had much trouble with the CV carbs. They need to be clean, and a lot of people apparently don't do a good job of cleaning them. The fuel rails need to be cleaned, not just the...

    Ummm... I don't think so. Sounds like he slept through trigonometry because he thought he'd never need it.

    Pricing depends on your location. Prices are typically lower at the end of the season, higher in the spring. $4100 sounds fair, but it never hurts to offer less.

    No need to prime the pump. Put a teaspoon of gas into the carbs and it will fire off instantly. You'll probably have to prime it twice, but after it runs for 10 seconds, the fuel system will be...

    When is the last time that it was used? I'd be afraid of gum in the fuel system, especially with ethanol fuel. That is fixable, but it takes a lot of time.

    Otherwise, I think the biggest...

    Thanks, guys! Manufacturing it and shipping it in its present form just isn't practical. However, I've been thinking again...

    The Shop Cart Revisited

    When I started buying the larger Kawasaki JetSkis, it became apparent that I would need a larger shop cart on which to work on them. My old, small cart worked, but it seemed rather 'tippy' with an...

    Don't know about that model, but on the STX-12F it was helpful to remove the engine mounting bolts. The driveshaft coupling was still engaged, but we were able to tilt the engine enough to get to...

    I've bought 3 of them for my LXs and my 310.

    Look through the pictures of the older models to get the color you want.

    The driveshaft bearing/seal assembly is called the 'holder'. They split when they get old and flood the hull, which is one reason that an electric bilge pump is a really good idea. Ruptured cooling...

    I would suggest getting the driveshaft holder from Rhaas. I just bought OEM pisser nozzles and re-routed the hoses. You have to block off the rear pisser outlets. I did not put straight fittings...
